clients are saying about Gloria:
In the mid 1980’s I met this young woman who was opening her own business in Rocky Mount. Being only in her mid 20’s, people thought she was crazy to do this, but not only did she excel, she surpassed the people who had questioned her abilities. From her background, Gloria came from a humble and simple lifestyle-
I ended up renting office space from her in the 90’s and at that point, Gloria became an inspiration to me. I said I want to own my own building one day as well. As a rising Financial Advisor, people thought I was crazy to get into the business at 23 and then at 33, build my own building. In the mid 90’s Gloria planted seeds with me and I never realized that until working with her in the past two years.
Many years passed after I was a tenant of hers, the year is now 2013, and I was planning to purchase property in Wilmington. I found out Gloria was a Realtor/Broker there. I felt funny calling her to see if she would work with me, with Gloria not knowing at that point she had been an inspiration to me for many years. I had never told her- Once I started working with Gloria, I learned very quickly she does her homework. She is a leader, she is black and white when it comes to detail, and if someone thinks they will pull anything over on her or her client, all I can say is “watch out”. She educates herself and strives to excel to higher levels. And once we found the property for my office, I can truthfully say, I would never work with anyone else but Gloria moving forward.
My daughter recently got married and Gloria helped her and my son-in-law purchase their first home in Wilmington. While I know this wasn’t a large sale for Gloria, that did not sway her from providing them the same compassion, care and knowledge that I had been given when I was looking for my office. Everyone knows that buying a home has its hurdles and challenges. Gloria was right there to help them through everything. Once they closed on their home, both my daughter and son-in-law said, “I will never work with anyone else but Gloria going forward. She is awesome." I said “I told you so!”
If this testimony is not enough for anyone to see how Gloria operates, as a Financial Advisor I will tell you, there won’t be anyone else I will work with. As a potential client if you need any kind of reference, I encourage you to call me, but be ready for a long conversation of how, if there were more Gloria’s around, the world would be a much better place."
If you are looking for someone that does their homework, excels at detail and has her clients at the top of the list, Gloria Gunther is worth investing your money to have her work with you. I have learned more working with Gloria than I ever have with any other Realtor. She strives at excellence for what is in the best for HER clients! We won't work with anyone else after working with Gloria!"

We would have been lost without your meticulous attention to detail and caring guidance through every step of our first home purchase. Being a dual military, Army Officer married couple, this process could have been much more difficult as we had quite a unique situation. You walked us through from the beginning of the process as we were still stationed in Washington state, all the way to the end of the process as we picked up our keys in North Carolina. You helped us overcome the many challenges associated with finding the right house, negotiating a contract, setting up home inspections, etc. as we were unable to be physically present. Closing on a house, sight unseen and in the middle of a long road trip move, can be a very daunting task but you made it seem easy and even took care of all the things we would have never known we needed to do. We love our new home and this whole experience couldn’t have been smoother. You were always available to help us and were extremely responsive whenever we had any questions. Your advice was always sound and we will be sure to let any of our friends moving to the area to give you a call! Thank you once again!

I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to help us purchase our home
in Pinehurst. Over the years, we have purchased many properties and this one
was certainly the most challenging. Your total involvement through the process
ultimately made it happen. I have worked with many realtors in the past and
I can certainly attest that I have never seen anyone work harder or more proactively
on my behalf. More times than I could possibly keep track of you went above
and beyond what is traditionally expected to get the deal done. Thanks again
Gloria. Hopefully we will have an opportunity to work together again as we
become established in Pinehurst."

It has now been four months since we settled
into our new house and we are still
amazed at how perfect a fit it is for us!
We cannot thank you enough for
contacting us that it was available and for
your many conversations with the
owners (who wanted the house shown to prospective
buyers but who needed to
wait for suitable housing to accommodate them
before they could settle on a
closing date), and for your diligence in taking care
of every single detail that protected all parties involved.
many respects, this was not an easy sale
for you. The health of one of the
sellers was of great concern to us all and
you graciously realized the need
to make sure the transaction was as easy
as possible for them, while at the
same time, you always protected our position
as buyers. This was a delicate
balance but, as usual, you accomplished both with
grace, professionalism, dignity and patience for all
Bob and I hear someone talk about the possibility
of moving, we are quick
to tell them about you! Thanks again--and please
drop by whenever your travels
bring you to Whispering Pines!"
You walked hand in hand with us during the
entire (home buying) procedure, from contract to closing of our second home.
kind attitude and attention to details went
beyond our expectations. We had
nothing to worry about except getting the
cashiers check from our bank! You
are truly a person of detail who arranged all the
repairs needed and numerous additional requests that enabled us
to have a smooth closing.
are a delight to work with and we highly
recommend you to anyone seeking your

"Gloria, I would like to express my heart-felt thanks for your
tireless efforts regarding my recent home purchase. As a first time buyer, I
was obviously inexperienced with the home-buying process. Yet, with your devoted
representation, I never felt as if I was in over my head. More important, however,
was your detailed involvement after the offer was accepted. Your dedication to
seeing this deal was properly completed allowed me to focus on other work-related
priorities. If I sell this house in the future, I hope to be able to work with
you once more."

My wife and I would like to thank you for your endless
work, dedication and commitment to us in the extensive
process of selling our property. You did all the
work! Your amazing efforts in handling procedures,
in always keeping me completely informed of any and
all that was going on has left an everlasting impression.
I ever have a need again for a real estate agent,
you will be the only one I’ll
choose. I have and will continue to recommend
you to my friends
and associates as the Best Agent in our area.
Not only an agent, but an agent with remarkable
and principles for yourself, your business
and for your client. I consider you to be
a very good friend!
Thanks for the amazing job. Well done!"
